Before Melissa Joan Hart was Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, she was Clarissa Darling on Nickelodeon's Clarissa Explains It All . Clarissa was the coolest. She had quirky clothes, her hair was always on point, her friend, Sam, that came through the window was cute, she had a computer in her room, and she had a pet alligator! What more could a 90's girl want? I also related to Clarissa because she had an annoying younger brother, Ferguson, and I had an annoying younger brother as well.
